Biographical Information[edit]

Formerly confused with fellow Negro Leaguer Bill Lindsey in The Biographical Encyclopedia of the Negro Baseball Leagues, William "Red" Lindsay is most notable for being one of the few Negro League players to reach 100 years of age. Red broke in with the Atlantic City Bacharach Giants in 1931, hitting .500 in their 8 games against other top black teams and playing shortstop. He played for the Washington Pilots and Bacharach Giants the next two years. In 1934, Atlantic City was in the Negro National League and Lindsay only hit .225 as the regular shortstop. It was his last season.
